vendredi fleurs...


We were on the way to a friends house when I saw this house. It was all closed up, in typical French fashion, but there was something magical about the garden. So fabulously untouched.


So a couple of days later, I returned and took these photos...



Love the front gate and the way that it is slightly hidden, if I was the owner, I would leave it like this....a perfect weekend hideaway!



This photo was taken from the side of the house, think that we would have to cut the lawn a little....


But this is my favourite photo, I adore the idea of finding a house with a secret garden and love the fact that it is slightly wild and overgrown ...



Je vous souhaite à tous un vendredi et un week-end fabuleux très heureux, Leeann x

  4. Absolutely stunning! That completes my idea of my secret garden too. A dreamy yet wild garden, a lovely treasure that needs to be unveiled. Wonderful.

  7. I'm loving this spring's show of glycine! We're having a similar 'spectacle' in Provence as well. Absolutely lovely.

    Your cottage find is so charming.

  11. Quite magical with the pretty wisteria - maybe the owners are on holidays and will be home soon to mow the grass and open up the windows. Lovely post.
